An Exquisite Winter Reception at the Beverly Wilshire

February 5th, 2016

We had one day free on Saturday, as this was the day the bride’s family was hosting the reception on their own, however we were hired to take care of a few events for the groom and his family before they left the hotel to go to the wedding venue.  Madiha got to Beverly Wilshire to take care of logistics such as having the groom’s car decorated with fresh flowers, groom’s family’s traditions such as sera bandi (groom’s face is covered with flowers) at the Beverly Wilshire while other members of our team were waiting at Taglyan ensuring that the horse, mobile DJ, drummers and dancers were ready for the groom’s arrival for Baraat.  Everything worked like clock work and the Baraat procession went off with all the pomp and circumstance.

Sunday, December 20th was the grand finale of all events.  At the initial design walkthrough, we were inspired by the color robin egg blue looking at the ballroom carpet.  The color palette of robin egg blue and white was decided upon with hints of silver.  The entire ballroom was draped in the light blue color with straight white valance.  Even though client was referring to the theme as “old Hollywood,”  our inspiration was from the Russian empire.

As guests arrived, their first visual was the escort card table that was dressed in custom linen of fitted royal blue linen and white faux fur fitted cap.  The couple’s monogram in laser cut was visible at the bottom center and a light was placed under the table to high light the monogram.  Inside the ballroom beautiful panels in blue and silver were placed against the stage, sweet heart table was luxurious and decadent with three layers of custom linens.  The couple’s chairs were dressed in white faux fur that went all the way down to the floor.  This special table was flanked by pedestals atop which sat romantic lamps.

The stage for the band was embellished with large mirrors and our show stopper the was sixteen chandeliers in various shapes and sizes above the dance floor.  The dance floor itself was stunning in light blue and a large silver camellia flower in the center of the dance floor was elegant and beautiful.

Long tables were mixed with rounds and created quite a drama.  Three different floral scrapes sat atop guest tables that were over the top and were embellished with white feathers and jewels.  Hundreds of flickering candles heightened the drama.  Two long family tables had chandeliers hanging above and beautiful chargers sat atop the tables with napkin treatment of fur and pearl.  When the curtains to the ballroom opened, guests were in for an unforgettable experience.  Lovely girls dressed in white stood atop pedestals playing electric violins with a full twelve-piece band.

The couple made their grand entrance and went straight to the dance floor for their first dance.  Guests were entertained to beautiful music while noshing on delicious seated meal.

They say all good things must come to an end and hence this memorable night came to an end as well but not without memories of our couple, their families and guests minds etched forever.

A special thank you to all of our Exquisite vendors:

Colorful Rajasthani Mehndi at the Vibiana

January 29th, 2016

When Nikki’s friend approached her with the good news that her son had gotten engaged and she wanted Exquisite Events to plan the wedding, Nikki was ecstatic! This was ten months before they set the date. We immediately started with recommending various venues after it was decided that all events will take place in LA.

After visiting a few places, the decision was made to have the mehndi at Vibiana and reception at Beverly Wilshire. Dates for both events were set in December with the mehndi night on December 18th and reception on December 20th. The bride’s family was planning on hosting the actual ceremony and reception, which is traditionally done in Pakistan. Once the venues were booked, we started the planning and design process.

Needless to say Nikki and Madiha were truly excited to be planning the mehndi at the beautiful Vibiana. Because of the high ceiling, the idea was to hang something above the dance floor to create a focal point. The couple was to sit on the altar, which would be another focal point.

After much discussion with the groom’s mother, the theme for mehndi was decided as Rajasthani with lots of color and drama. After multiple design walk through’s, Nikki decided on turquoise, saffron yellow, and lime green. Since the groom’s mother is majorly into clothes and has a keen fashion sense, she made a trip to Pakistan for the trusseau and ordered the bridal ensemble for this night in same color palette.

Linens on long tables were turquoise and all the rounds were dressed with lime green underlays and a heavily embellished overlay in a turquoise color. Mahogany chivari chair pads were in matching lime green. The drama was brought in on the dance floor by replicating the linens in lime green and turquoise. Stunning florals sat atop guest tables and flickering candles created magic.

The stage was decorated with beautiful furniture with a live flower wall and panels with colorful umbrellas and lanterns. Lighting at the venue was magical and dramatic.

The groom arrived decked in Rajasthani gear from head to toe, along with the bride who looked like a princess. Guests enjoyed the cocktail hour in the garden and the weather could not have been more perfect. The groom made his entrance with twelve dancers that were dressed in traditional Rajasthani attire amidst drummers and flautist followed by the bride’s entrance on a throne. It was one of the most regal and royal processions as they made their way up to the stage.

Guests and both families danced the night away, and food stalls which stayed open all night were enjoyed by all. It was especially wonderful to watch parents of the groom just letting loose and really enjoying their son’s event. Just as they say, all good things come to an end, this night did too but definitely on a very high note!!

Beverly Hills Montage Engagement Party

January 22nd, 2016

We absolutely LOVE planning destination weddings in LA so when we received a phone call from a mom in Kuwait saying she was having her daughters Engagement party at the Montage Beverly Hills, we were so excited.

Hessah and Ali are one of the most beautiful couples, inside and out.  When I spoke with Hessah’s mom she said she wanted the most stunning engagement party for her daughter and most importantly, she wanted it to be different from anything she had seen since many of her guests were coming from overseas.

It was an absolute joy to design this room. The colors we decided on were ivory and rose gold with splashes of blush. A lot of times we ask the client to give us a few adjectives of what they envision the room to look like and this time the words were regal with touches of bling. We draped and recarpeted the room in ivory and rented all the tables and chairs.  For the tables, we used rectangular crystal tables and round mirror tables to add some glam into the room. The focal point was the band’s stage which had an entire wall full of white hydrangea with beautiful mirrored panels on either side. The room had a warm, rose gold glow to it and looked so romantic and “regal” when the doors opened.

The servers all had their measurements taken to wear custom white coat tails and the entertainment set the tone for the evening. We had professional dancers perform 3 sets where the last set was a an upbeat Latin dance that opened up the dance floor that stayed packed until the night was over.

Hessah and Ali looked like royalty. She was wearing a beautiful Zac Posen gown in a red orange hue and he was very dapper in his Ralph Lauren tuxedo.

This was definitely one of my favorite events to date, not only because it turned out so beautiful but because the family was such a joy and pleasure to work with. Wishing Hessah and Ali a lifetime of happiness

Have an Exquisite Day!

Madiha

Up Close and Personal with Mr. Radha Arora – President of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts

January 8th, 2016

Happy New Year to our beloved readers! We hope you had a lovely holiday season spending time with family and friends, and we hope you are as excited as we are to welcome all things new in 2016.

This year, we’re trying something new on our blog. In our work, Nikki and Madiha have had the pleasure to travel around the world and meet extraordinarily inspirational people in the luxury event industry, and we’d like to highlight at least one of the people we know and admire each month.

We hope you enjoy the first “Up Close and Personal” blog, where we interviewed Mr. Radha Arora, the President of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. Nikki has tremendous respect for Radha and considers him to be a good friend.

Radha Arora President of Rosewood PropertiesEE: How many Rosewood properties have opened worldwide since you became the President?

RA: Since I joined Rosewood, 4 new properties have joined the portfolio in Abu Dhabi, London, Beijing and Tuscany. In addition, we have also announced 15 new properties that will open over the next 4 years in Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Middle East.

EE: What does a typical work day look like?

RA: The honest truth is that there is no typical day. I travel a lot and so it sometimes takes me a few seconds when I wake up to remember which country I’m in. But it’s this variety that energizes and excites me. I’m not someone who could sit behind a desk doing the same thing day after day. My “typical” day could see me juggling media interviews, meeting with potential new owners, interviewing potential Managing Directors for new properties, corresponding with guests and looking at designs for some of our hotels about to undergo a renovation – all of this while keeping an eye on our competitors. Let’s just say, if Cirque de Soleil ever needed a new juggling act, I would probably get the job.

Rosewood MayakobaRosewood Mayakoba

Rosewood San Miguel de AllendeRosewood San Miguel de Allende

EE: How do you stick to a personal regime with incessant travels?

RA: It’s hard but you have to be strict and carve out some time to hit the gym. Even if I don’t want to get on to that treadmill, I know I’ll feel better afterwards. I’m a big believer in heathy mind, healthy body. I also have some of my best ideas on the treadmill – because you’re not looking at your emails, it frees your mind to think about other things.

Rosewood Little Dix BayRosewood Little Dix Bay

EE: What advice would you give to people in the industry to be successful, professional and create a strong brand?

RA: Forming long-lasting, successful relationships is key. It’s a small world and you will often bump into the same people again and again.

Rosewood JeddahRosewood Jeddah

Rosewood CordeValleRosewood CordeValle

EE: One of the properties that is especially close to Nikki’s heart, is the Hotel de Crillon in Paris. We can’t wait for the re-opening of that property, because we heard it is now a modern style. Nikki has stayed there many times and has fond memories of staying in the Sonia Rykiel Suite. Can you tell us anything more about its grand opening, or what you hope its guests will enjoy?

RA: I’m afraid I’ve been sworn to secrecy about the Crillon for the moment but it will be magnifique!  Karl Lagerfeld himself is designing two incredibly glamorous suites . . . but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. All I will say is that it is our intention to return the Crillon to the center of Parisian society. 

The CarlyleThe Carlyle

EE: Do you have a favorite property?

RA: That’s like asking me if I have a favorite child. I simply cannot pick a favorite. How do you choose between indulging on white truffle pizza at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, or lounging on the white sands of Little Dix Bay or sipping cocktails in Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle.  All of them are unique, memorable and wonderful.

Castiglion del BoscoCastiglion del Bosco

EE: As we are wedding designers, and love to travel the world doing destination weddings, what would you say are the best properties for large scale events?

RA: There are several properties that are perfect for large scale events.  In Mexico, San Miguel de Allende recently opened the Rosewood Lawn,  a stunning outdoor space that overlooks San Miguel and can accommodate up to 700 people.  La Palapa at Rosewood Mayakoba is a beautiful beachfront pavilion which holds up to 400 people who can dine overlooking the Caribbean. Within our city hotels, Rosewood London offers a wonderful ballroom while the Pavilion at Rosewood Beijing feels more like a grand private residence.  For the ultimate destination wedding, I would suggest Jumby Bay.  What could be better than having your wedding on your own private island in the Caribbean?

Jumby Bay Private Island Rosewood Jumby Bay Private Island Rosewood

EE: What are you looking forward to for 2016?

RA: On a professional level, we have 3 new properties scheduled to open  – Rosewood Puebla in Mexico, Rosewood Phuket in Thailand and Rosewood Phnom Penh in Cambodia.  In addition we also have some very exciting announcements to make next year.  But on a personal level, I’m simply looking forward to spending more time with my nearest and dearest.

We’d like to thank Mr. Arora for taking the time to speak with us. It’s always great to hear from him, and we enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about Rosewood Hotels and all of the exciting things happening in 2016!

If anyone would like us to design, plan, and execute your destination wedding at one of these incredible venues, please email us at info@exquisevents.com.

Thank you for reading, have an Exquisite weekend, and we’ll see you here next Friday!

The Sensational Joel Robuchon Restaurant, Las Vegas

December 18th, 2015

We recently flew out with very dear friends on a whim to Las Vegas.  This trip was purely based on dining at fine establishments and our favorites in the city.  Our dinner at Joel Robuchon at the MGM Grand lasted way beyond four hours amidst inspiring and interesting conversation, beautiful ambiance and amazing food.

When only the best will do for dinner, visit Joël Robuchon’s unparalleled French restaurant. This unforgettable Three Michelin Star restaurant caters to a sophisticated palate and was designed to resemble a luxurious Art Deco townhouse complete with a lush garden terrace and marble floors.

Winner of Forbes Five Star, AAA Five Diamond and Wine Spectator’s Grand Award, Joël Robuchon has redefined Vegas dining. Quiet and intimate, this experience promises to be one of the finest meals of your life. (Joel Robuchon Restaurant)

Review of Joel Robuchon did not disappoint. We were looking forward to a one-of-a-kind dining experience, exceptional service, and of course an exquisite meal, and we were more than satisfied.

Below are a few images of the restaurant taken from the website, and pictures of our sensational six course meal. (Hope it doesn’t make you too hungry… ;) )

Aishya and Rohan’s Rancho Santa Fe Grand Finale (Part 4 of 4)

December 11th, 2015

The reception for the couple took place at the exclusive Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. The bride wanted a 1920s Paris look and Nikki was able to translate that into a beautiful vision. Long mirror top tables with exquisite linens were placed in all three rooms.

The middle room, which had the head table, was draped above in muted tones of champagne and taupe. Flowers were romantic with pearls and feather accents and tons of candles and candelabras ran through the length of the table. Each place setting was embellished further with chargers, beautiful menus and glistening stemware and flatware.

The room where couple was going to do the grand entrance, cake cutting and first dance had a gold and champagne dance floor, a piece de resistance with stunning linen for the cake table, gold color façade for the DJ booth, and a stage for the band. Lighting was done to perfection and the room looked magical and romantic per the bride’s vision with candlelight and ambient lighting.

Guests were transported after the ceremony to the club in shuttles where a string quartet entertained them. They noshed on tray passed ors d’oeuvres and a specialty drink along with full bar. Once the room was revealed amidst ooohs and aaahs, the couple made their entrance and went straight to the dance floor. After the cake cutting and speeches, guests dined on a delicious four course meal with a tremendous dessert bar to finish the evening.

The bride changed into her Alexander McQueen short dress when dance floor opened and the four day events came to a spectacular end.

San Diego Wedding Ceremony (Part 3 of 4)

December 4th, 2015

According to Aishya’s parents, she always dreamed of having her wedding at the house and parents were very happy with that.  Nikki and Madiha loved the grounds of their vast property at the site visit and decided to put the mandap in front of the old established tree with the beautiful orange grove as a backdrop.

The mandap furniture was carefully selected and matching ghost chairs in amber were placed in a semi circle so all guests could have a clear view of the ceremony.  The bride had requested very elegant scrolls for programs in ivory and gold that were placed on each chair along with some savory snacks.  Since the client’s property sits on a five acre lot and has a long driveway, it made for a long baraat procession with a drone capturing images from above!

Guests were served cold lemonade upon arrival at the front of the property and made their way to the ceremony area.  The bride walked down the aisle accompanied by her father.  The pandit performed the ceremony explaining each step and kept the guests entertained with anecdotes.  The ceremony ended with the couple being showered amidst tons of rose petals and left in a vintage Franklin.  Guests were served pink champagne upon departure and headed for the golf club to attend the couple’s reception.

Thanks for reading our blog, and stay tuned for part 4 next week!

An Exquisite Thanksgiving!

November 27th, 2015

We’re taking a pause from our 4-part blog post to share a little bit about our family Thanksgiving!

It has become a tradition every year for Madiha and Osman to host the Thanksgiving feast at their home and this year was no exception.  Cajun deep fried turkey and regular turkey from Neiman Marcus is very much a part of that tradition also.  Madiha painstakingly sets the most beautiful table and the feast is decadent enough to put all great chefs to shame.  Osman’s sister Nadia is a great chef and between the two of them, they whip up the most delicious and gourmet side dishes.  This year, Nikki’s Mom was present at Thanksgiving too and enjoyed being around three generations, her kids, grand kids and great grand kids.  It was also first time that Madiha’s in-laws were in LA to experience Thanksgiving.  Madiha’s mother-in-law baked pecan and pumpkin pies from scratch and they were a perfect end to a delicious dinner.  Needless to say it was a meal enjoyed by all immensely amidst jokes, anecdotes, stories and inspiring conversation.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to everyone! We hope your time with family and friends was absolutely Exquisite!

Next week, we resume with part 3 of the San Diego Destination Wedding.

Aishya and Rohan’s Sangeet (Part 2 of 4)

November 20th, 2015

Our next day event took place at the Chart House in Cardiff. Our Aishya and Rohan opted for a restaurant buyout and wanted to put small tents on the beach for mehndi. When we did the initial walk through, our idea was to have the guests be able to flow indoor and outdoor. After inquiring about the possibility of using the parking lot for that purpose the request was granted and the event plans started coming together.

The bride had always expressed the fact she did not have a clear vision about her Sangeet, except for the fact she wanted a bohemian, beach chic vibe. One amazing thing about Cardiff is that the beach is relatively quiet and the noise ordinance does not come into effect until 1 am, which worked out great in our case.

The tent frame went up the night before and was then decorated with Raj Tents liners, chandeliers and drapes all through the night.  The carpet was laid in the morning with furniture and props arriving around 12 pm for 4:30 pm arrival time. Smaller tents were installed on the beach with jute rugs and white lounge furniture accented with aqua blue pillows. Our inspiration for the main tent was shades of blue and white.

The bar inside the tent along with the DJ booth and dance floor had a water design in blue to pay homage to the beautiful ocean. Flowers were on the minimal side with emphasis on dozens of candles in varying heights, sizes and shapes, all in whites and blues. Nikki and Madiha had hand selected pieces of furniture in white and silver from Hire Elegance and the sofas and chairs were accented with printed and textured pillows in blue.

The client had special beach bags made as favors that were stuffed with pashmina shawls, sandals and bangles as favors for ladies. Each item was personalized with the couple’s name and guests were thrilled to receive these takeaways!

The guests arrived at 4:30 with a lot of ladies going to the smaller tents for mehndi, while other guests enjoyed the drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous on the beach with enchanting live music being played.

The couple arrived and was taken aback by the transformation.  The photographer was present to capture their shots along with family and guest shots. The ambiance was festive, elegant and fun. A special Bollywood dance troupe came from LA to perform along with another dance troupe from San Diego. The client wanted to offer an array of sea food, pasta stations as well as prime rib and salad stations, which were thoroughly enjoyed by all guests. There was a lot of dancing and entertainment, and the evening came to an end past midnight but we were already thinking about the ceremony next day at client’s residence…
